IBIS was off for all shots - forgot to say that was another key setting.

Again, don't know if that also frees up more processing power for C-AF, but speeds were high or I was panning with slow speeds so didn't see a need to have it on.

Well, I can't agree here. With a stabilized viewfinder, the camera finds the focus clearly faster than with IBIS disabled. And I still am not sure if the burst mode with IBIS disabled produces a higher keeper rate than with burst mode enabled.

Hi Don,

Are you saying turning stabilization on for the *viewfinder* affects performance in a positive manner?  Or just having IS on?  I would have thought stabilizing the view would decrease performance, as well as shortening battery life, so I have always left it off.
